Honda Pilot Design

Power and capability

All five Honda Pilot trims have a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. Current owners report that the Pilot handles smoothly, and with a vehicle this size it's important (and appreciated) that you don't feel like you're bouncing around on your commute from Mason, OH. Most of the Pilot models we have on the lot come in AWD, but if you prefer FWD we typically have a few in stock.

Like many midsize SUVS, when properly equipped the Pilot can tow along some extra toys - up to 3,500 pounds to be exact. That could be a small to medium camper, or even a small boat or easily two jet skis if you want to take a weekend trip up to Lake Erie!


If you're in the market for a three-row vehicle it's assumed that having a spacious interior is important, and the Honda Pilot delivers on that.  Behind the third-row you have 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which is very similar to the midsize Honda Accord sedan.  If you mostly use the third-row on special occasions, you can keep it folded flat and have up to 46.8 cubic feet of space! If you need the entire backrow you'll have 83.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. In other words, if you want to go shopping at the Dayton, OH mall you'll have plenty of room for everyone's bags.

Passenger wise, almost all Pilot trims seat up to 8. The top-level Elite trim seats up to seven, since it has second-row captain's chairs. If you want easier access to the back row, or have siblings that travel best when they have a bit of distance between them, the captain's chair option is very appealing!


The Honda brand is known for its longevity and reliability, so the same can be said for the Honda Pilot. If you're someone who is planning on buying your Pilot you can be assured that with proper maintenance and care that you'll be able to enjoy the vehicle for a long time and easily surpass 100,000 miles. Another perk is that the Pilot has classic styling that won't look overly outdated as the years pass by.

Honda Pilot Equipment and Safety Features

Luxury Equipment

A Pilot doesn't command a luxury price tag, but that doesn't mean you won't find some refined amenities here and there. For example, there are two leather options: standard and an aesthetically appealing perforated leather upholstery. If you frequently go on long drives you can keep those out back occupied with a DVD system. We also think you'll enjoy the little details, like ambient lighting to spice up the cabin or a panoramic roof for stargazing when you're parked in quiet Middletown, OH.

Safety Features

In recent years, Honda has started to make itself known in the market for providing quality and exciting advanced safety features. Their package is called Honda Sensing® and it contains the following:

  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Road Departure Mitigation
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Braking System
  • Forward Collision Warning

In the trim section below, we'll let you know if the Pilot you're interested in buying or leasing has these features.

Other safety features include a standard rearview camera and Bluetooth technology so you can take calls without touching your cell phone. There's also blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, LED lights for easier nighttime driving, and a Honda LaneWatch™ camera shows you what cars (or bikers) are in your passenger-side blind spot!

These technologies, coupled with the Honda brand reputation for building safe vehicles, give added peace of mind whether you're driving around familiar Hamilton, OH or beyond.


Honda Pilot Trim Configurations


The base trim comes with a push button start, rearview camera, and Bluetooth. The LX has stylish 18-inch alloy wheels and eight people can fit inside. There's also rear privacy glass.


The standard push button start gets sweeter once paired with the Smart Key entry found on this trim. You'll also get LED daytime running lights, fog lights for misty mornings, and the Honda LaneWatch™ camera. Tech wise, you'll like the large 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, a driver 10-way power seat, and the option to add on the Honda Sensing® safety package.


This is our most popular trim, and with it you'll get a touch of refinement thanks to heated leather seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.  There's also a power tailgate that's helpful when you have full hands, an equally useful one-touch second-row button for easy entry into the back, and a moonroof. Optional packages include navigation, Blu-Ray, and Honda Sensing®. You'll love how much you can customize this trim.


Get a little more performance and control with paddle shifters and a 9-speed transmission. Roof rails are also standard, making it easier to add on a bike rack or cargo box. This trim has a lot of standard premium technology, including a 2-position driver memory seat, rear parking sensors, ambient lights, and stronger speakers. Honda Sensing® is also standard!


Along with standard Honda Sensing® you'll also get blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and LED headlights and high beams. Premium features include a heated steering wheel, perforated leather seats, and a panoramic roof. As a reminder, this trim has room for 7 passengers.
